help with customer...

I have a lady I mow for and she had some grass in her yard but it's not very nice looking grass mixed with a lot of weeds... So she wants it look nice like all her neighbors yards, so what should I tell her to do? I was thinking tell her to have it aerated and then just over seed it? She said she didn't wanna do anything too costly. Any help woulod be appreciated. Thanks

I hate when customers think that landscapers have "magic dust" that we could sprinkle on their laws to make them perfect...and its inexpensive.

It takes time and money for a well established lawn.

You gave her a good suggestion. If its not in her budget then tell her to save and wait.

i'd give her the harsh reality. tell her she needs to kill the existing grass, lay some topsoil to even the ground, then to lay down sod, then keep watered everyday. throw some fert after established. voila, her cheap beautiful yard.
